“We look forward to having CRA with this event,” remarked Michael Blackmer, the Promoter of Berlin Raceway. “The CRA events at Berlin in the past have been great races. The Rowdy Busch 125 will be another great show with NASCAR star Kyle Busch competing against some of the best CRA drivers and the great group of local talent that always comes out to compete in these types of events!”
Busch got his first CRA Super Series victory in January at the SpeedFest 2009 event at Lanier National Speedway. Busch finished second to David Stremme in the 37th Annual Winchester 400 last October at Winchester Speedway.
